There's so much wrong here...

"Stealthing"  As in, guys pulling the condoms off mid-sex without telling their partners.

First....  I have to admit that when it comes to hook-up apps, I'm clueless.  I've been happily married since before apps even existed, so when I hear about "Tinder" and "Bumble" I pretty much have no idea what they're talking about.  Until now, thanks to the news reports, and I have to say that I'm a bit less happy with the world.

Second, for the "OMG DAVE!  Sex is COMPLETELY NATURAL!  What is your PROBLEM?!?!?!" cohort that I know exists in the world.  Hey, want to guess what else is completely natural?  Childbirth.

Third, if your sole desire is to hook up with random strangers for a night of anonymous sex, then you're going to run into people as morally depraved as you are, and they might want to do something like take the condom off.  Because at that point the only focus is sexual gratification, not the well-being of your partner.  Do you really think you're going to find Mr. Right on Tinder?  Really?

We've now come to a point in society where people can and do randomly hook up and screw like barnyard animals, and the biggest problem in people's minds is "Oh he took the condom off".  Yeah, just brush off the moral degradation, brush off the mental and emotional issues that random sex with strangers both entails and brings with it.  Naw man, the problem is he took the condom off!

Ladies, if you're having sex with a guy who you only met on Tinder, you have much bigger problems than that.

The worst part is that these are the very same people who assertively advocate that abortions and birth control pills should be free, but smokers and drinkers should be forced to pay for the choices they make about what they take into their bodies.

Uh, sweetheart, he's known you for approximately seven hours. Not a lot of time to build a deep, abiding trust relationship.
